MAME Info:

0.140u1 [Cananas, Mr. Do, S. Brown, J. Bijl, Ranger_Lennier, F. Xerri, Gor, Kevin Eshbach, Smitdogg, Tormod, Guru, Tomasz Slanina, The Dumping Union]


- 0.140u1: Cananas, Mr. Do, S. Brown, J. Bijl, Ranger_Lennier, F. Xerri, Gor, Kevin Eshbach, Smitdogg, Tormod, Guru, Tomasz Slanina and The Dumping Union added Bygone (Taito Corporation 1985).

- 29th September 2010: Tomasz Slanina - Something VERY special! Purchased by Dumping Union. First screenshots of Bygone.

- 1st September 2010: Guru - Yep that's right, Wyvern F0 and Bygone are now secured. Note that the 2 PCBs shown in the above pic cost (the Dumping Union) US$6000. I loaned Smitdogg the money (I'm not a charity, people) and my Japanese contact bought them for us. This was a serious effort because the Wyvern F0 was sold as a whole cab which weighs a million tons. The cab had to be carted 1000 kilometers across Japan, which itself cost about $300 in fuel and tolls. I've sold at least US$1500 in PCBs via Smitdogg on eBay to help recover some of the money but the DU is in serious financial debt because of these purchases which of course will affect future DU purchases.
